101 Ways to Help Your Budget and You at Home

7. Shop Thrifty

One fun way to save money is to buy second-hand. Shop thrift stores for great deals on home decor, kids clothing, all kinds of things! I was looking for new lamps for our guest room a few weeks ago and didn’t want to spend a fortune on a room that only gets used a few times a year. I stopped in at our local Goodwill and found a set up lamps for less than $10. I plan to spray paint them to freshen them up and add some matching lampshades that my parents gave me. Wah-lah! Less than $20 for a set of pretty lamps for my guest room.

 

8. Learn To Sew
Clothing can be very expensive, especially as often as we have to buy our kids clothes as they grow. In addition, sewing can allow you to create your own gifts, cleaning cloths – all kinds of things! If you don’t know how to sew, consider asking one of the women at your church to show you the basics. A few quick lessons can open up a whole new world for you.

 

9. Make Your Own Candles
Another great way to add items to your own home, as well as create gifts for others is to create your own candles. You can find directions online and even how-to videos on YouTube. A sweet friend of mine makes her own candles. She uses them for gifts and even brings in some income by selling them.
